What's the most gorgeous one you've seen/had for your own wedding? I tried on one today which was stunning but was waaaay over budget. Looking for some inspiration as know I'd like this style. TIA!

Not sure what you'll think of this but I love it!

presumably you don't need a bra?

What else do you like? Lace? Beads? Fishtail style? Ballgown style?

(I may watch too much Say Yes to the Dress....)

And what is your budget?

I got a dressmaker to make me this Vera Wang design. As for the bra issue - a strapless, backless basque from Rigby & Peller did the trick. It was a weird garment though! (the underwear not the dress)

There are LOADS of backless dresses, especially if you want sleeves. I got married in winter and was frustrated by this combo. Justin Alexander, Maggie Sottero and Provonias had loads.

I loved Suzanne Neville Chelsea when I tried it on.

Bra not an issue for sure, specialsubject!

Olenna, in terms of style I liked backless and tight on the waist and thighs. I think I'm more concerned about the shape/silhouette than the material although I wouldn't want too much bling and I didnt love the satin ones! The one I tried on which was amazing was almost 9k, gulp! I'd maybe go up to 4k? Although that seems ridiculous for a dress you were once!

Scatter, that's lovely, I bet you looked great. How did you find your dressmaker?

Ruby, thank you, I'll take a look at those. I'm so tempted by a winter wedding, they always look gorgeous. But I'm also impatient so we're getting married next summer! So I won't need sleeves.

If a church wedding, just check with the vicar: some won't allow strapless

Thanks Carole, we're not getting married in a church
